Trump's Arizona rally featured speeches from two people—AZ state Sen. Wendy Rogers and state Rep. Mark Finchem—who say they're Oath Keepers, the org whose founder and 10 other members just got charged with seditious conspiracy. In case you still think these forces are unconnected
Tonight’s Trump rally will feature remarks from “Oath Keeper” Wendy Rogers. 11 Oath Keepers—including the head of the militia group—were formally charged with seditious conspiracy against the US government this week.

Earlier this week, SC Republicans claimed it was IMPOSSIBLE to draw a congressional map that kept Charleston whole and Beaufort in #SC01. Well, not only is it possible, it’s quite easy! Take a look at the SC Senate’s alternate map that was just released: scsenate.maps.arcgis.com/app…

RAY EPPS THREAD: 1) I know this will break some hearts. For a few months, people like Tucker Carlson, MTG, Gaetz, and now Cruz have been “just asking questions” about a man named Ray Epps.

The Select Committee is aware of unsupported claims that Ray Epps was an FBI informant based on the fact that he was on the FBI Wanted list and then was removed from that list without being charged.

Rand posted this AFTER Dr. Fauci told him that 2 weeks ago a man drove across the country with an AR-15 to kill Fauci. There’s a straight line b/w Rand’s website & these threats. Why does Rand post this tweet? Rand wants Fauci dead. Republicans have chosen violence over voting.
Dr. Fauci and I finally agreed on something in our Senate hearing today

This is what happens when people's political identity becomes their faith. These people justify right and wrong as a believer does for an all-knowing God. If they did it, it must have had a good reason. So demands the faith.
This is a must-read from @noturtlesoup17 - she spent months undercover in-person in the MAGA world recording conversations and documenting what they were doing. This screenshot is probably the most relevant - this is how society breaks down. logically.ai/articles/i-was-…
